Double Standards: The Rudolf Hess Cover-Up

Rating
(0 )

751 double standardsFor over 60 years, there has been an unprecedented cover-up by both the British Establishment and successive generations of historians about the flight of Hitler's Deputy Rudolf Hess to Scotland in May 1941. It has long been dismissed as the misguided attempt of a madman to make contact with a non-existent British peace party.

Based on entirely new material from eyewitnesses, hitherto inaccessible archives, and intelligence sources, Double Standards reveals that despite official denials, Hess flew to Britain with Hitler's full knowledge; that there is is substantial evidence that the prisoner who died in Spandau prison was not the real Rudolf Hess; and that Winston Churchill guilefully used Hess to influence Hitler and change Britain's fortunes in the war.
